This is an original, unfolded, English one-sheet movie poster from the 1950s for a theatrical re-release of The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Robert Morley, Peter Bull, Theodore Bikel, Walter Gotell, Peter Swanwick, and Richard Marner. John Huston directed the classic film based on the novel by C.S. Forester.
The poster measures 27" x 40.25" (it has not been trimmed) and is in very good condition with some minor creasing along the white edges. There is a small tear at the middle of the bottom white edge. There is a small crease in the R of Robert Morley at the bottom of the poster. Unlike most English one sheet posters, it has never been folded.
Please look closely at the photo as this is the exact poster you are buying. It is not a stock image. The black squares and circles around the edges of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This very rare and collectible poster, printed in the mid to late 1950s to promote the British theatrical re-release of The African Queen, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
